  • @Sasha123, hopefully somebody with personal experience of Switzerland will be along to advise you soon, but in the meantime check out this free Switzerland Travel Guide for some inspiration.
  • I'm afraid I have nothing to add @aviator. It seems cruel but sometimes students simply cannot motivate sufficiently to get visas to certain countries. Getting your renewed student permit for South Africa may help. As for where you should apply, it …
  • @aviator, the appeal process for Schengen visas can take forever I'm afraid. Far better to just re-apply with a stronger application if possible. Did you include an itinerary and confirmed hotel bookings? Is there anything else you can provide that …
  • @Kahlan, check out our Climate in Malta page. You might also want to read the rest of the guide for a bit of inspiration ans some useful info.
  • @Ajaymalhotra, where are you from? We can't tell you the entry requirements unless we know your nationality. Do you mean you don't have a passport at all? It is impossible to travel internationally without one, so the first thing you need to do is a…
  • Thanks @CheersT! Very useful stuff.
  • @ameliebrown, Dubai has a huge expat community and European-style food is probably not as hard to come by as you are imagining. You can check out this restaurants in Dubai page for some ideas. You will note that many of the popular European restaura…
  • Hi @Ajaymalhotra There's actually lots to do with kids in Dubai. Check out this page which details popular Dubai kids attractions.
  • Dubai is extremely hot, and I'm afraid you are visiting in one of the hottest months. In May the temperatures in Dubai average between about 24 degrees celsius and 37 degrees celsius, but the temperatures frequently rise above 40 degrees. Luckily th…
  • @ameliebrown, when are you visiting Dubai? Knowing the time of year will help us advise you on the climate (and may be important culturally, especially if you are visiting during Ramadan). As far as local custom goes, it is best to dress conservativ…
  • @ameliebrown, India is a very popular but also very vast tourist destination. The most well-beaten tourist route for first-time visitors is the Golden Triangle, which consists of Delhi (the capital), Agra (where the famous Taj Mahal is located) and …
  • @jsm, is there any stamp or indication in your passport that you were at any point in the country illegally? It sounds like you should be okay to return, because you were legally granted a work permit after the imprisonment and you didn't overstay o…
  • I'm glad you got the passport - it should simplify matters considerably for you. Enjoy your trip!
  • @utsavshah01, just to back up Alethia here, it makes no difference which country you apply at. Technically with a Schengen application you are meant to apply to either the country where you are spending the most time, or the country you are visiting…
  • @Amitshir, the weather in Egypt in June is blisteringly hot (their hot season is between May and October), so you need to prepare for serious heat. However, as with most desert climates, Egypt can get surprisingly chilly at night so do take at least…
  • Unfortunately CheersT is quite right @Willy69. To get a visa you will need to prove compelling ties to your home country (which I'm assuming is Nigeria). A letter from the institution you're studying at outlining that you have paid for your studies …
  • @aleciabane, check out the Maharajas Express website for the price of tickets and other details about the various journeys on offer: http://www.maharajas-express-india.com/
  • Hi Mike, Idaho is indeed about the outdoorsy stuff. I have heard very good things about Sun Valley and it is by far and away the most renowned ski resort of the state. If you do visit Boise there is snow fun to be had in the nearby Bogus Basin Mount…
  • @sonic, this is a continuation of a former conversation and it is confusing out of context. Please go and post it in the thread you originally started and which people have already responded to.
  • Just to clarify @karim12, you are saying that you are planning a holiday in Germany and will only be spending one night at home in Tunisia? You have left it a bit late to apply for a Schengen visa from any country at this point, but yes, you could t…
  • @nazeem, can I suggest that you try this forum: http://www.expatarrivals.com/answers They specialise in expat-related questions and may be able to advise you. I can say, however, that I know of two older men working very successfully in Dubai.
  • @leolevan, it is always best to direct these questions to the cruise operator. It is passengers' responsibility to organise whatever visas they need for the cruise but the company should be more than happy to advise you. As far as I can see Georgian…
  • Thanks @larryblank! You've become a good contributor to this forum yourself.
  • @adams78, don't bother appealing the decision, as appealing can take a very long time. It is better to just re-apply (to the Italian embassy again, with a stronger application, or to another country in the Schengen zone). Just note that if you apply…
  • Argentinian Patagonia is just wonderful for nature lovers. So beautiful and pristine, with interesting little towns to stay in. It was my favourite part of the country. Check out the WT Argentina Travel Guide for a summary of the main tourist attrac…
  • Wowza @oneheart17! Thanks for sharing your story - it might help others researching safety in Uruguay. Would you mind telling us which neighbourhood this happened in?
  • @Bachi_Jigar, my main concern here is that you are considering visiting this family you do not know in Karachi - please don't do that. Also, consider whether Pakistan is a place you could see yourself living as this man's wife if you were to get mar…
  • Alethia is quite correct @suzie77. Generally passports need to have at least three months of validity for a visit to Spain, which would mean you don't have enough time on yours. However, some nationalities don't require that much. Just let us know w…
  • @nervien, you mean you are looking for a travel agent in Jordan? Or Egypt?
  • Hi @jpeter. I have never been to Russia personally, but I have heard that the Trans-Siberian Railway is an incredible option for traversing the country. It is one of the world's most famous train journeys and would certainly allow you to see gloriou…
